Just purchased two 3-way fan splitters (these) from Newegg, thanks! thumb.gif

So I should be able to run 6 fans from 2 of the fan headers, plus 2 more from the board directly (not counting the CPU fan header and CPU_Opt fan header, so a total of 10). That'll work out great wink.gif

I'm not sure what the Molex plug there is for, but I wonder if it runs power from the fan header to something else, like maybe my fan hub that's in the case? That would be even better, but I seriously don't see it powering a 7 fan hub from a single fan header on board, so I'm a little confused. Oh well, it looks like it'll work either way.

Did you buy PWM fan headers? They have a molex power and only communicate RPM and Signal to/from the board. Mine are just regular 3 pin splitters.

Yeah, it's a PWM splitter, but the fans are only 3-pin.

Well, that won't really help you because the 12V molex powers them. If you want to control non-PWM fans you need to be able to change the voltage. If you use that they will all just run at full speed anyways.

Oh man, are you serious?? Why is the Molex a male connector though? It doesn't look like it's powered by the Molex (I don't know of any female Molex plugs coming from a PSU), but I could be wrong (I hope I'm not). I think the Molex is there to power a Molex powered (2-pin, 5v (?)) device from the fan header, at least that's how it appears to me.

This is the splitter here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812119248

EDIT: yep, it says "Molex (connect to PSU)". Damn. I think I bought the wrong splitters. the connector to the motherboard is just for RPM feedback, as you said. Damn. That's not cool. Well, Newegg already charged my card, so all I can do is cancel it and wait a week for the $10 refund frown.gif

In the meantime, I'll try to order the right ones now.

Ahh yeah, I have both kinds at home just in case since they are pretty cheap. I always end up looking for fan splitters during a build. I got these ones: http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=34_804_1011_1194&products_id=31621

How about these? Are these right? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812200455

They only split to 2 fans, but maybe that's better for power. Might have to get 3 of them since I have at least 6 fans + the water pump + the power for the radiator which will probably use another fan header on the H220 (not sure). So I need to power up to 8 fans. The board has 4 chassis fan headers and 2 CPU fan headers, so with 3 splitters that should be plenty (I think).

They're ugly, but I will sleeve them. Either that, or wrap the visible portion in electrical tape and run them behind the motherboard to the nearest cable management hole, lol. For those pesky times when you're feeling lazy or run out of sleeving, there's always electrical tape hahaha.

It's a good thing you caught that because I would have got those in and been really disappointed. And they wouldn't be worth RMAing, so I'd have been out $10 bucks as well, and would have had to make another order at that time for the right ones and waited again. So you saved the day, my friend smile.gif

No problem, I saw what you posted and I wanted to make sure you didn't get the wrong one, waiting for shipping sucks especially if you order the wrong item (I've done it a few times).

Those should be fine, sleeve them to look pretty and you're good. You can run 2 or 3 fans per header with no problem, but if you really want to be sure you can check the board manual for how many amps the header can supply and check the fan specs to add them up.

I ordered 3 of them (the right ones). So that'll let me run an additional 3 fans. I wish they were 3-way, but I couldn't find any other than the one you posted, but those seemed to be a little much in the way of pricing for me. They look nice and all, but I only need to run 8 fans anyway. These should give me enough room to run a total of 9 in the system, which is perfect. If I need to later on, I could even get 3 more and fill up all my fan headers with them and run up to 12 fans. I also like that they're 12", because with a big case like mine, you need all the extra wire length you can get, and hiding the extra slack is easy. Getting into situations where a wire/cable is too short really sucks, so I'd rather err on the side of having cables that are too long.

Well, thanks again man, and these should definitely help to quiet things down a bit in there. At least it's still not as loud as my last case and fans were. What was especially annoying was that one of the fans whistled through the grill it was mounted on. Drove me nucking futz! The sound of air movement solely is definitely a welcome change, but silence is golden thumb.gif
